From Lorton Prison to Laurel Hill

For the better part of a century, the grounds of Lorton Prison, one of the most beautiful parcels of land in Fairfax County, was restricted and, to an extent, hidden from public view. Now, the redevelopment of these 2,300 acres, now known as Laurel Hill,  is underway.
